Eric Conway: Morgan State University Choir sings: God Bless America!

Dr. Eric Conway writes:

On this two hundred and forty-fourth birthday of our country, I fondly recall a 2014 performance of the Morgan State University choir singing “God Bless America”.  We happened to be on our Middle East tour of Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Erimates.  During one concert in Dubai, we were inspired to sing “God Bless America” as an encore.  Despite being in a foreign country, the rendition was received so enthusiastically, that one might have thought only Americans were in attendance.  This arrangement features the quite poignant lyrics of the verse.  During these difficult times, I offer this recording to inspire us all to be proud of our land of the free - our home sweet home.  See the link below to the performance.


We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle
